Minto First Shipment

London, United Kingdom - Pembridge Resources plc (LSE: PERE) ("Pembridge" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the first shipment to Japan of copper concentrate from the Minto mine.

As a major landmark since the re-opening of the Minto mine last year, the first shipment of copper concentrate has left the port of Skagway.  The cargo represents the mine's production since re-opening until the end of March, which was previously transported to Skagway.

Gati Al-Jebouri, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of Pembridge said:

"This first shipment of copper concentrate is now on its way to Sumitomo in Japan.  This is an important event for the Minto mine, both commercially and symbolically.  Re-starting mine operations has been an important step in the plan for realizing Minto's value, although challenged by the latest COVID-19 developments.  This landmark event shows the strength of the team at Minto and with the support of our partners, the ability to meet targets set."
